Spreading the Good News to All 




As I reflecl on my life as a .Seventh Day 
Advcntist, I can recall my great- grandmother 
always telling me how her journey as an 
Adventist started. .She was currently living in 
Montgomery, Alabama and she was a faithful 
devout member of the Baptist Church. She ^aid 
that one day while walking to the store she 
heard a man preaching and as she looked under 
the tent. Many were moved by the words that 
wece coming out of his mouth. Every night my 
great grandmother aad.^randfather vv ould go 
out and hear Elder E.E. Creveiund preach the 
word of God. 
Many students may not know the impact of 
E.E Cleveland's life and ministry. Allow me to try and give you a glimpse. In 1954 Pastor E.E. 
Cleveland held an historic evangelistic meeting in Montgomery on the comer of Smythe and High where 
over 500 persons were baptized; one was my great- grandmother. Ever since then my entire family has 
been raised as Adventists, and they number over 300 people. Imagine that this took place with ju>t 10 
other individuals he baptized. 

E.E. Cleveland was a great man: he was a man of integrity. I can recall the first time I heard him preach. 
He came up to Detroit to deliver the message for the Youth Federation. He spoke about his upbringing 
and where he went to school and the enormous impact it had upon his life. He stated over and o\ er that it 
was a "litde schooiin Huntsville, Alabama." E.E. Cleveland was much more than a preacher. He was a 
leader a man that stood npfor principle and what he believed in. Pastor E.E. Cleveland taught and 
proclaimed the Advent message to.a world that was losing all hope. For that I am grateful. Praise the Lord 
for allowing this man of God to embrace us with his presence. I praise the Lord for a man of God who 



cared about people and was sincere. Praise the Lord 
for Elder Edward Earl Cleveland's life and Ministry. 
One day we will meet him in heaven and sing the 
word's of the old negro spiritual "free at last, free at 
last, Thank God Almighty we are free at last."

Pear Journal, 

^ fliis years the cafe i5 PY-NO-MITE! I mc^n it's a whole 

j new experience, there's more space, and it's a whole 

lot more comfortable! Chillen with my friends is so 

! much easier and I actually enjoy spending my time in 

there. I enjoy the fact that they have a t^rand new 

variety of food, and that the take out line is 
completely separate from the rest of the cafe. It 
cuts down on the chaos, ya know! The atmosphere is 
"Sophisticated, and tfie attitudes of the people arc 
usually cool, calm and collected. I think it's becoming 
"my new favorite place to chill on campus, now when I 
valk into the cafe I feel as though I'm actually in a cafe 
instead of a school cafeteria lol! I'm definitely hitting 
up that cafe tomorrow. =)

In Per^pectiv 



When asked to write mvllWpective 
regarding studi^nt life, tifft wEoUs' came to 

mind: hangiiig^o:^ in the (^eteria and 
market, going td^e games, attending class, 

and of coiiirfejM ffTide to Wal- 

Mart. Howev^^Kreal meat ol^udent life 

is that o^j^l^mip/ln order to have a 

well-roui 1^^^^—^ iH^HMB 
alwaysin the 1MHHRhflHround^S%: 




in the 
^ent p( 



every day 



ihey shaq 
you, but 



diffe 

inspirational. Not onlj 
laughs, hugs, atid4;gars 
also have the love of 
within them. So many times we 

^one of those days' or barely made if 

^^^hrough the week, but with Christ's 

disciples surrounding you, you were able to 

relive those times and have a smile on your 

face. Student life is a different definition for 

everyone, but for me, I'll remember the 

strong friendships I have made that wit 

follow me till the trumpet sounds.

2009 cannot be cc'n\/eyed by mere \Nor'de, it was a

I had such a ^reat time ar\d it was a life chan^in^ 

experience for me. The atmosphere and the students 

\Ner& all welcoming and laid back. I can't wait to 

attend 03\^^ood Uni\/ersity in the fall of 20 1 to 

create my own Oakwood ite experience.

LOVE Motions, Man! 



IT BREATHED THROUGH US; IT DROVE US; IT MADE US DO 



SOMETHING THAT WAS FULL OF BLESSINGS, FUN, AND GOOD TIMES AGAPE 
DAY 2009 HAD US DOING LOVE MOTIONS FOR THE BETTER PART OF 

THAT Thursday. We gathered early in the morning, energized 

AND GURIOUS ABOUT THE KIND OF DIFFERENGE WE WOULD MAKE IN THE 

VARIOUS PLAGES THAT WE WOULD VENTURE TO FOR GOMMUNITY 

SERVIGE THAT DAY. SOME OF US REPAINTED HISTORIG BUILDINGS; SOME 

VARNISHED WORN, HISTORY-LADEN BENGHES; OTHERS MADE NATURE MORE 

BEAUTIFUL IN LANDSGAPING; WHILE OTHERS SPENT SIMPLE TIME IN 

THOUGHTFUL GONVERSATION WITH SOMEONE WHO NEEDED A KIND 

ATTENTIVE EAR. BY THE END OF IT ALL, AGAPE DAY HAD LIVED UP TO 

ITS name-God's love had shone glearly, relevantly through his 

WILLING STUDENTS.

' I had two goals in mind before I cam#to OakwSod-jDlanned to get a 
I degree and develop a relationshioprith Christ. Twow^eks^fore 
i freshman orientation I changed mjjpnajor from Physical Therai 

Biology. I had already been told ^out the difficulties in that major. 

However, I believed that God waped me to go into that field. My firj 

^ semester of my freshman year ^s extremely frustrating as well a^ 

stressful. I felt like I was drowninp in my school work. I Aiggled da> 

and night studying for my scierws as well as other cl^pis. On^ay 

my friend suggested that I shoijp study IJlBfcJtt^befor^^lyjn^piy o1 
my subjects. I thought the ide<

to the realization that I wanted to sIj^PB^K lifi 
I rebaptized my second semester. That wau

that I know GLod for myself. It was only through the Holy Spirit thai 
I changed an^Tfci^jjTTStill in the process of changing. I want to

too hard to come to God not to giv^ii^^od loves you so much and He 

wants you to be in heaven. Psalms 16: I I rWii^^ates "You will show me

Oakwood went to Chicago to plaiy 

Andrew's University for the first time 

ever. The game was full of cheering from 

both Andrews and Oakwood. "It was a 

great experience. I enjoyed bonding with 

my fellow Oakwood students and meeting 

the Andrews students. Seeing us win was 

a great bonus too." (Krysten Copeland) 

These were some of the sentiments 

expressed by those who had the privilege 

of going and cheering for both the girls 

and guys. It was truly an experience that 

will NEVER be forgotten.

intramural . football 






It's either you WIN or GO HOME! Intramural football has been apart of the 
Oakwood experience and every season it gets more competitive with every 
game. Whether its Dynasty vs. the Spartans or Mean Girls ys. KAOS, the true 
athletes can be found on the Gridiron! Around the campus you hear the words 
"meet me on the field at 6, because its going down for the crown!" So come and 
watch: view the amazing plays, mud stained shoes, and a sport where we leave 
it all on the field and play to win the game.

Ministry brings meaning to. my life. I thought I knew what it was to do something " 

important: I was class president, USM vice, accomplished pianist, and the list. goes on. 

But nothing, absolutely nothing, means anything until you do it tor Christ. 

When I joined NAPS it was a way to appease my conscience, more a favor to God 

than anything else. But looking back, I realize God did me a favor by poking and 

prodding me until I heeded to His voice. He knew that-J was missing out on the true joy 

of salvation. The thing about ministry is that while you" minister to others, God along 
with those you're ministering to, will minister unto you. Working with the children in the 
communities in and argund Huntsville has made me so happy. And nothing compares 
to the joy I felt when after 4 weeks of laboring in Malawi with the pupils in the class I 
was privileged to teach, and walking hours to give Bible studies in my village, I saw my 
kids and Bible study candidates go down into the watery grave, knowing that if I never 
saw them again on this side of heaven, they'd most assuredly be in the kingdom. I was 

baptized, like most young Seventh-day Adventist, but did not truly understand the 

fullness of salvation. It was not until I allowed the Lord to use me to bring others to Hirp 

that the Lord was able to "restore unto me the joy of thy salvation...." (Psalm 51:12). 

Jesus saves; not just the people you're working with in a ministry, but you as well. I 

was and still am in no way perfect. But the Lord is molding me, taking out what is bad, 

transplanting into me what is good, and I know that when He is done with me (and 

you) "I shall come forth as pure gold" (Job 23:10); then, and only then, wiil we be fit for 

His soon coming kingdom. If you want to be there, work to bring someone else with 

you.

L.E.T.C 








Joining the LETC*(Literature Ev3ngelisnn Training Center) cannpaign for Thanksgiving'break of 

2009 was one of the "eye openers" in my life. I learned many valuable lessons that will 

remain with me throughout my lifetime, and I hope to impart them to others. 1 . The power of 

prayer One day during the campaign, I was not motivated to do any work. Our leader 

stressed, "No prayer, no power." It resonated in my mind all day. As I went from door to 

door, I communed with God. I did not make much money that day, but I was able to speak a 

word, in due season, to those in the community who needed it. I did not feel like doing any 

work, but God worked through me as I prayed, I saw the power of prayer touch lives and lift 

burdens that day. 2. God will take care of His children I made up my mind to sleep wherever I 

would be allowed to lay m^head, but the Lord surprised me. A humble servant of the Lord 

had compassion on the motley crew form Oakwood University that came to do LE work in 

Tennessee and paid for two rooms at a comfy hotel for a week. In addition, we had hot meals 

'lli'' breakfast and dinner each day. I thought I was going to be cold and hungry, but God took 

care of my needs. m3. Trials and test will come One day, it seemed as if God had forsaken us. 

People rejected us at almost every door. No one in the community seemed to'want prayer. 

The team was discouraged. But I believed God dispatched angels to be near to us that da\ . 

The day was seemingly unfruitful, but we comforted- one another with prayer and songs. The 

next day was better than the day before. The lesson I learned was God will never leave me 

nor forsake me. Also, I learned that iron sharpens iron, and a friend lifts the countenance of a 

friend. LE work is not a work for everyone, but those who are brave enough to rise to the 

challenge will receive an experience with God that seldom find.

Oakwood is known for many things sucli as its Theology Program, 

Nursing Program , and of course the Music Program in the Adventist 

community. For years the best musicians, song writers, and singers 

have come through Oakwood and have left a legacy that can't be 

compared with to any other Adventist College. The musical 

atmosphere is so strong that it is said that "one out of four people on 

campus can sing or has some sort of musical talent." Music is such a 

part of the campus that there could be someone singing or playing an 

instrument just going to class. People from all over the world come to 

Oak wood's campus to join the different choirs and groups. Each choir 

or group brings a style that no other has such as contemporary 

gospel, gospel and classical. Even the musicians show their talent at 

every concert or program. No one can challenge the skill and 

appreciation for music like Oakwood.

It begins with theritual grasping of the right 
hands. The two men then puil each-other in with 
a loud, "AAAAYYYY" or "WA5SUP?!" Only the 
shoulders and chest touch, with, the still- 
clasped hands bound together between the 
chests, thereby creating the •ajlHmpQrtant

In closing hugging etiquette is needed, one, always. respect another person's 

space. Two, ask for perm i^-S ion to hug eomcone when you need or want to share 

a hug with them. When notwanting to impose your will on that person thjs.is 

important to take .into. consideration unless them and yourself hav^e an 
intimate relationship that hugging is known to be acceptable with' or without 
permission. Three, be aware of how you hug and how you are being hugged.' There 
is a difference between a warm, friendly hug, and a sweet passionate embrace- 
please hug accordingly. Lastly, a hug is a gentle embrace, not the Heimlich. .

'y name is Christal Lynette Williams. 1 am a member of the Tamarind Avenue Seventh-day 

Adventist Church in Gompton, Galifomia and am originally from Carson, California. I am now in 

progress of completing my senior year at Oakwood University in Huntsville, Alabama, f am majoring 

in Biological Sciences with a minor in Chemistry. Next fall, I intend on going to graduate schoolTo" 

receive my masters in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology Research arid then on to 

medical school. I am an active honors student with memberships in such clubs and orgaijiizations such 

as Conqueror's in Christ Choir, Cancer Awareness Research Association, the Oakwood s Alumni (P£e=- 

Alumni Council) and Oakwood Biomedical Association. I also hold the position as the treasurer for the 

senior class of 2010 and serve the Huntsville community doing Outreach through this institution. My 

major goal is to be a physician specializing in pediatrics. I chose this career because not bnly do I have 

a fascination about the body and an eagerness to learn, I am a genuinely caring person. Ijtruly desire'to 

make a difference in this world and would like to do so through medicine 



As an ongoing student and future professional, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste" is much more that a 

tag line to me because Iknow the importance of an education in today's society. Man^ of us take 

educatfei for granted but after seeing how so many people cannot afford schooling, I trily understand 
how precious Imowledge is and appreciate the opDortumty to gain it7

From this competition, I have extensively learned of The United Negro Cdjkge Fund's rbajor influence 

on the various Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as countless stud^ts needing 

a5.sistance. UNCF has directly shown its importance to me and my institution by supporting my school 

with building funds and providing it resources to assist deserving disadvantaged students

Journey of An Oakwoodite 



f'\ro/i^ o^^ev(U»r^ V eiT^iVee^c^e^ 






I say to my friends all the time . 



% **>i, ** 



" there's something about Oakwood". Oakwood University has that extra 
flavor which makes it a home to many people. In my experience, I would 
have to say that my spiritual journey has made me choose Oakwood as a 
second home. The atmosphere is a very pleasant and divine. The AY 
program is very dynamic in worship and the speakers are phenomenal. 
There is so many Bible studies on campus that it is too hard to choose 
which one to attend. Week of Prayer at Oakwood is very fufilling and it 
gives an insight in the Lord's work through his people. My spiritual i^^^ 
connection ignited my fire for Christ. Through the years, I gradually 
reunited with Christ. Today, Christ has full control on my life and has 
shown me tremendously my mission through his will.

As I reminisce about my time at Oakwood many memories begin to flood my mind... 




fresh face, a new pace, 
^^ ? Another page in my life 
^0^ Registration lines 

What a waste of my time! 

Journey of an Oakwoodite 

Carter hall is my new home 

At least it's what they try to tell m 

Public showers? No hot water?! 

Now this is turning scary! 
"Attention Ladies of Carter Ha 
Oh goodness, what is it now?! 
Will the girls on 4th floor please Stop i 

() [running? \J ^ 

1 1 And tiirn your music down! 
two years down, two more to go i. 
Can't believe I'm halfway done 
Been here a short time, r ^ ( 
^N yvell> where has the time gone 
' i-^- Melee!!! Sirens! Police! 
Will the night ever end? 
Town hall meeting, addressing the students; 

A message they're trying to send 
Oakwood is not just a black college campus 

For show and just to pretend, 
)akwood, for years, has pushed their students 
To reach out and also to mend 
Classes each year is all a blur 
I hope I remembered the content 
Too many assignments so little time, ^■'{ 
._ I hope my next teacher is God-sent^ 
(Shout out to all those terrible teachers1| 
No time for friends or hanging out 
This is the long, final stretch " 
English Proficiency?! Why'd no one teli me?! 
There's no time to forget! 
Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve 
Is not only their famous motto itSa 
i deep rooted meaning has been here for years 
So let's show them we know how to!

Academic Experii 



\t6a\ 



1 Learning at Oakwood is definit^ an experience. Dependi 
" teacher, the class, and the subject the classes might range from the 
vivacious to the relaxed; the spiritual to the scientific; the large to the small. 
Often the classes depend on thfepreferences of the teacher, but the 
experience is largely determined by your classmates. One of the best 
experiences at the beginning oTOach semester is finding out exactly who 
you'll share a class with. You |iever know, the people you meet in class 
may very well be those with whom you form a life-long bond. Yet most ^' 
importantly, classes challenge students with the harrowing ordeal qP^ 
receiving a grade for semesters worth of work. The struggle for good 



grades is the joint struggp of the Oakwood stuj 
camaraderie among the pudents in their respj 
students of the various departments often froi 
the extended Oakwood^n; this is because tl 
their courses, and are mAB|I^^|^^ of pe 
related clubs. And thatiM^HMHBfeie WtnS

during groupiprojects or 



I roups in^h. 



and a source of 
artments. The 
nit family within 
the majority qL

The teachers of these cm^p also piJI^de 
component of the academic expeHennq^s menti( 

above, they largely determine the structure of the classTa^walJas gri 
outlines. Furthermore depending largely on the teacher (and youl 
personal area^toterest), classes can either be enlightening or humdruifT 
Perhaps more impSlliiijyVjSome courses may be more intensive and 
demanding than others depe!Wii|jj^n the teacher. Yet across the board, 
the teachers at Oakwood are usuall^J|li^|^asily approachable, and very 
I ^ ^_ understanding. 



All things considered, the academic experience certainlyTSl|inijgs a bit 
of hard work, time, and energy, but the process of forming lasting b( 
with classmates, and learning new concepts and skills at the feet of some 
;Our more insightful teachers certainly make the process all worth it.

It has been a great pleasure serving the Oakwood student body in 
putting this publication together. I would be remiss if I didn't 
acknowledge God for his Strength, my family, my employers, most 
certainly not least my dedicated and hardworking staff. Furthermore, 
I hope that you all enjoy the efforts that we have made in producing 
this publication. God Bless!
